Jose Mourinho finds new way to insult Man United players after Liverpool loss

Injury prone players

Jose Mourinho has made an astonishing dig at his Manchester United players.

While insisting he still had the support of the dressing room, the Manchester United manager admitted he thinks some of his players are crocks.

He said there are too many injury prone players.

Mourinho added that it’s been going on for some time.

Clearly the likes of Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw have been in and out the team for that reason.

Chris Smalling also got injured in the warm-up, and Phil Jones is no stranger to the treatment room either.

Sky Sports report Mourinho said: “We have lots of players that I could consider ‘injury-prones’ Because some of our players are always injured. And it’s not with me, it was before me.

“If you look to the stats with Mr Van Gaal, and before him with David [Moyes], that period there were players that were permanently injured. “

Mourinho’s own future

In terms of both their performances and results, United have been dire this season.

Speaking about who did or did not come in during the summer transfer window is wearing a bit thin.

The club are 19 points off the top of the table. They’re also miles off the top four, and things aren’t looking like getting any better.

Mourinho is now talking about top six finishes and hoping to finish in the top four.

United may be more of a commercial club these days, but they know a top four finish is key.

Both in terms of money from the Champions League and in terms of retaining their brand image.

It seems almost inevitable Mourinho will leave at the end of the season – if not sooner.
